The Tour de France looked more like the X Games Saturday when Romain Marandet emerged from the trees and flew over the race on a mountain bike, YouTube footage of the event shows.
Marandet appeared to vault just after eventual Tour winner Chris Froome and other riders passed en route to Annecy-Semnoz, the destination of Saturday's stage of the race.
Marandet also has a behind-the-scenes video (see below) of how he pulled off his leap. The footage manages to maintain a little mystery as we watch guys clear a path through the forest for optimum flying conditions.
